Brunch Strata

Reviewed: Feb. 9, 2009
I was really hoping to add this to our breakfast rotation, but my family thought this was just ok, and I had followed the recipe exactly. I think it was the cream cheese aftertaste that we didn't care for.

Strawberry Oatmeal Breakfast Smoothie

Reviewed: Jan. 19, 2009
I've always loved the idea of a smoothie for breakfast but have never been able to find one that I liked - always too sweet, too bland, weird texture. Wasn't sure about the addition of oatmeal, but it was great, nice texture, right amount of sweetness. I used regular milk because I can't tolerate soy, and powdered the oatmeal. I have this so often now, that I powder a few cups of oatmeal at a time so that it's ready anytime I want a scoop.

Mouth-Watering Stuffed Mushrooms

Reviewed: Jan. 19, 2009
These were a big hit with my whole family including the child who wouldn't eat "fungus"! The only changes I made was to sautee 2 tbls of onions with the stems as I didn't have onion powder, and I used herb & garlic cream cheese for extra flavour. Took another poster's suggestion and brushed the mushrooms with melted butter before baking. Couldn't stop eating these!

Hot Mexican Spinach Dip

Reviewed: Dec. 27, 2008
This was great and devoured very quickly. I did add some chopped, sauteed jalopenos because we like spicy. Omitted olives due to preference, and evaporated milk due to comments from other reviewers. As a result, it was pretty thick when it came out of the oven, so I added a couple of spoonfuls of cream. Will definitely be making this often - thanks!

Chocolate Pudding Fudge Cake

Reviewed: Dec. 27, 2008
Took this to a Christmas party last night to rave reviews. It's a quick and easy cake to put together. However, like another reviewer, I found that it did have that artificial boxed cake taste. But, I think it's because I've gotten used to making cakes from scratch (allergies) so I noticed it more. I did add 1 1/2 tsp of vanilla and 1 tsp of cinnamon and liked the flavour that added. Served it with vanilla bean whipped cream.

Grandmother's Buttermilk Cornbread

Reviewed: Dec. 23, 2008
We really enjoyed this, and make it often! Over time, I've made a few changes - sauteed about 1/2c corn in butter along with sliced jalopenos to taste and added those to the batter. Reduced sugar to taste. Finally, I preheated my skillet and melted butter on the bottom so that it sizzled when I poured the batter in - it gave a nice crispy crust on the top and bottom. Thanks for the great recipe.

Roasted Vegetables

Reviewed: Jan. 21, 2005
We really enjoyed this - I crumbled some goat cheese on top before I served it so it melted a bit amongst the veggies - really tasty. Also for a veggie treat, I omitted the squash/potataoes and added peppers and served over pasta and crumbled goat cheese - excellent!
